Weeks before his untimely death in July 2015, Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D., met with Camilla Rees, founder of ElectroMagneticHealth, to discuss his concerns about the proliferation of wireless technologies found in our everyday life and their link to serious health concerns, including cancer.
Dr. Gonzalez believed there is no question that the proliferation of EMF activity in the environment is not only raising havoc with human health, but also leading to an increase in many common diseases, including cancer. Many other health experts would agree.
The World Health Organization (WHO)/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), declared EMFs a potential carcinogen back in 2011, following a week-long assessment by a face-to-face meeting of 31 scientists from 14 countries.
Dr. Gonzalez points out that the explosion of consumer electronics has occurred without prior research to determine short-term and long-term impacts on human health. Now it is akin to a speeding freight train, due to consumer demand and the huge amounts of dollars invested in the many industries now reliant on the electronics sector of the economy.
As Dr. Gonzalez noted, parents have also come to rely on entertaining their young children with electronic devices with Wifi.
A large share of the concerns over damage from EMF comes from the fact that today’s electronic devices are used in very close proximity to our brains and bodies. Studies show more than two-thirds of all adults, and an astounding 90 percent of those aged 18 to 29, sleep with their mobile phone near their head. But these adult habits are not the only reason for heightened concern.
Children, many of whom have their own cellphone by the time they reach the second grade, endure higher EMF absorption rates through their brains than do adults because their brain tissues are simply more absorbent. In addition, their young skulls are thinner and their relatively smaller size makes them more susceptible to EMFs.
“Childhood cancer is exploding exponentially – not linearly, exponentially,” Dr. Gonzalez said. “Why is that? Well, all these kids are on the little devices.”
